Pulka is a demanding sport that requires great skiing skills and a high degree of athleticism from dogs and humans alike. Along with skijoring, in which the person is directly connected to the dogs by a rope or harness, it is surely the most complete sled dog sport there is, demanding perfect teamwork.

These sports have their own national and international championships, held alongside the sled dog championships, but unfortunately they do not get the media attention they deserve, as a much broader public would certainly be interested.
